Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.
Listen, it doesn’t matter how far away these books are because I already love them and everyone else should be looking out for them too
Let’s be clear, I’ll be yelling about this book for the forseeable future but I decided to feature it today becasue of the cover reveal!
Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.
Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.
Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.
Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.
Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed.
Expected publication: January 14th 2020
We are getting a fantasy from one of my all-time favorite authors!!! I’ve had this pre ordered since the day it was available and I’ll probably read it in a day or less and then re-read it immediately after.
Maybe it’s all about people coming into your life for a little while and you take what they give you and use it on your next friendship or relationship. And if you’re lucky, maybe some people pop back in after you thought they were gone for good.

Rep: Two gay MCs/ Puerto Rican MC/ MC with ADHD
Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.
Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.
But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?
Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.
Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.
But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?
What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?
What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?
But what if it is?

People are complicated puzzles, always trying to piece together a complete picture, but sometimes we get it wrong and sometimes we’re left unfinished. Sometimes that’s for the best. Some pieces can’t be forced into a puzzle, or at least they shouldn’t be, because they won’t make sense.

We got a sneak peek!!!
The amazingness that is this writing duo has released a teaser with the cover and the first two chapters of What if it’s Us?
I am both people on this gif, because I was blessed and because I feel like I’m going to be run over by a car
This is the cutest shit I’ve ever read. I can just feel the affinity of these two characters, the world of possibilities they present…
The chapters are divided on each main’s POV with Becky writing Ben’s and Adam writing Alejo. Even if the article didn’t say it you can just tell at first sight.
Ben is very much a BA character, he comes from a caring family, has friends (though not many) and is upper-middle class. He is sweet and caring and has an optimistic way of seeing the world.
Alejo is peak AS, he is a latino with a less than perfect life and real problems that make him retract into himself. He is open but realistic about the world (if a bit pessimistic, but since he’s just gone through a breakup I don’t know if that’s a defining trait), he loves his friends.
Both Becky and Adam’s styles are beautiful but quite different, I’m excited to see how these two manage to form a relationship and make it work.
I just hope the ending was left in the hands of Becky. While I love Adam and his books, I’d prefer this one was not a tragedy
So, yeah, this is going to kill me.
I want some gay ID card to whip out like a cop badge. Or I could demonstrate in other ways. God. I would happily demonstrate.
My Last Message would be to find your people. And to treat each day like a lifetime.
